At Surrender Nightclub, Ne-Yo took center stage for a 20-minute performance under the stars. During his first song, “Miss Independent,” he grabbed socialite Paris Hilton from the audience and brought her onto the stage to dance to the hit tune. Ne-Yo went on to sing his hits “Sexy Love,” “Closer” and a new song, “Beautiful Monster,” from his upcoming album, which the artist said was his first live performance of the tune. After wowing the crowd, the Las Vegas native headed back to a second story cabana where he drank Grey Goose and Red Bull with an entourage of more than a dozen friends.
